A committee from Thailand’s House of Representatives, responsible for evaluating the feasibility of legalising casinos in the country, will present its findings to the parliament next week.

According to the Bangkok Post, the second study confirms that the legalisation of gaming is a possibility. Thai Deputy Finance Minister Julapun Amornvivat, who leads the special House committee, announced that the committee’s study had concluded, providing comprehensive information on the subject.

He stated that if the House adopts the study, it would then be sent to the cabinet for approval and implementation.

Sorawong Thienthong, vice chairman of the House committee, indicated that the gaming industry could “generate huge revenue for the country,” while the casino will be only a small part of the complexes.
